1: Don’t worry about score.
Play to have fun. Isn’t that the point of a game? If you focus too much on the score, you will become frustrated (especially on machines with low score settings) and not be able to play well. Ignoring this factor can lead to the possibility of finding other factors which will help increase scoring.
There are a few skills that translate from machine to machine regardless of how the playfield is organized. The first and most basic skill to have is hand-eye coordination. Build this up to optimally perform in any machine you come across. The second most basic skill is timing. Develop a sense of timing so you know when to hit the ball to get it where you want to.
3: Know your machine.
Learn about the machine. If possible, watch others play so that you can learn what shots give what bonuses and where to put the ball to get bonuses, mini-games and multi-balls. If you have the luxury to, go back to the same machine to play. That way you can get progressively better and even make it onto the leader board of the machine!
4: Be comfortable.
When you know you are going to play, be comfortable while doing it. This includes clothing and shoes. The last thing you want on your mind when trying to juggle around a multi-ball is that your pants or riding too high or your shoes are too tight.
It might not seem like much, but focusing on the game can help improve the way you play. Being distracted takes away from basic skills such as timing and hand-eye coordination.
6 Have fun!
Always enjoy your time with any game. The moment that it feels like a chore to play a game, take a break from it. This way, the experience can always be fresh and you can learn the machine with every single play.
